National Book Award nominee Lisa Graff returns readers to the magical world of A Tangle of Knots, where a camp for Talented kids just might be a recipe for disaster.
It's summertime and everyone is heading off to camp. For kids with special Talents, the place to be is Camp Atropos, to sing songs by the campfire, practice for the Talent show, and take some nice long dips in the lake. But what the kids don't realize is that they've been gathered for a reason--one that the camp's director wants to keep hidden at all costs. Meanwhile, a jar filled with a mysterious Talent has been dropped to the bottom of the lake, and strange things have begun to happen. Dozens of seemingly empty jars have been washing up on the shoreline, Talents are getting swapped, and memories are ripped from one camper's head and placed into another. Almost no one knows why.
